The Child Factor
An International Art Exhibition
(February15 through September 15, 2021)
I am a business professor with a passion for art. I have studied art at major universities for 20 years. I began as a functional potter. My pieces reflected nature in both form and color. Three years ago I discovered acrylic painting. It has provided me with vibrant, colorful ways to express myself. I believe my painting reflect movement and joy.
When I was growing up, the rainbow was always associated with children. Over the years, it began to reflect diversity as well. As I considered a painting about "The Child Factor" I realized that there were no blacks or browns in a rainbow and thus, have created a better rainbow, with all of the colors, surrounded by a shimmering gold. Children are our golden future.
For my second painting, I considered the journey that children take through life, from where they are born, through a process of imagination, learning to read, and how that results in growth.
A Richer Rainbow
This rainbow goes beyond the traditional colors to include shades of brown and black and encases all of these colors in shimmering gold.
Journey in a Child's Mind
This triptych reflects a child's journey from where one is born through a process of imagining, learning, and growing.
